Poetry Out Loud

Welcome back to school, where a new year and fresh semester awaits! Kicking off our Creative Writing poetry unit is the annual Poetry Out Loud— a poetry recitation contest that will take a district-wide winner to compete state-wide, then to Washington DC for a chance to win a hefty scholarship. Creative Writers are offered a chance to participate by picking two poems listed on the Poetry Out Loud website and practicing for four to six weeks with coach Joan Gelfand. Last year’s winner was our very own Abigail Schott-Rosenfield (class of 2014), who got to go to Sacramento for the state-wide competition. Please check out the website and see if you’re interested in participating!
